This course will introduce the students to various basic mathematical methods for chemists. The methods involve error analyis, probability and statistics, linear algebra, vectors and matrices, first and second order differential equations and their solution. Students in 3rd year B Sc or 1st year M Sc are encouraged to take this course. The problem will be mathematical and hence the format of assignments and exams will be subjectve problem solving which will be graded offline.
